About Hair We Are

Elizabeth and Ansia opened Hair We Are because they felt that it was the right time in their lives to take on this new adventure. They believed that having their own salon would be the best way to ensure their clients are completely satisfied.

We found the perfect place and our client base has grown to be big enough to support our move. We want to make the experience our own by giving it a personal touch.

The ladies regularly attend hair shows, seminars and hairstyling courses to keep up with all the latest trends and styling tricks. Hair We Are is quickly becoming a trusted hair salon in Stellenbosch.


I’ve always known that this is what I want to do. I wanted to pursue my one true passion.

Elizabeth has been a hairdresser for over 32 years and still finds it wonderful to see the difference she can make for her clients. She has worked at three different hair salons during her career, which left her with enough experience to partner up with long-time colleague and friend, Ansia.


You just know that [hairdressing] is what you want to do. It’s in your blood.

Ansia is passionate about working with people and feels that even after 23 years as a hairstylist the end result of a client’s hair appointment still brightens her day. She spent some time in London refining her hairdressing skills and gaining invaluable experience. With Elizabeth by her side she felt ready for the challenge of opening their very own salon.
